A man has been indicted in a large case involving stolen property, which included farm equipment.

According to the Kansas City Star Billy B. Garrison, 38, faces 17 counts brought down by a jury in Missouri's Clay County. The charges include 10 counts of receiving stolen property and seven counts of tampering.

The items that were listed in the indictment include a John Deere tractor, two lawn mowers, an air compressor, electronic equipment, and various other pieces of property. Bond for Garrison was set at $200,000.

Deputies from the county found a large stash of stolen goods back in November when they responded to a call that a dog had attacked a goat that lived on the property where the items were found.

"Authorities spent days at the residence cataloging hundreds of items," the report from the paper said. "At least six vehicles were towed from the property."

Recently, two property theft rings that stole farm equipment were busted up by officials in New Jersey. One of the rings had been in business for about 14 years, while the other operated for approximately six months.
